The unvarnished and unbiased inside story of President Donald Trump and his White House by New York Times bestselling author Ronald Kessler Based on exclusive interviews with the president and his staff, The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Gametells the real story of what Donald Trump is like, who influences him, how he makes decisions, what he says about the The unvarnished and unbiased inside story of President Donald Trump and his White House by New York Times bestselling author Ronald Kessler   Based on exclusive interviews with the president and his staff, The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game tells the real story of what Donald Trump is like, who influences him, how he makes decisions, what he says about the people around him, and how he operates when the television lights go off, while portraying the inside story of the successes that have already brought solid results as well as the stumbles that have turned off even longtime supporters and undercut his agenda. The Trump White House reveals:   •  Trump aides Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner have been responsible for Trump’s most disastrous decisions. Trump is aware that his daughter and son-in-law are problems and has hinted to them that they should go back to New York. Seeing Jared on TV, Trump said, “Look at Jared, he looks like a little boy, like a child.”   •  First Lady Melania Trump has a tremendous impact on policy and strategy. She sits in on meetings and is widely admired by aides for her judgment.   •  Kellyanne Conway is the No. 1 White House leaker.   •  Trump’s Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles proposed withdrawing protection from some Trump family members and aides to save money. Horrified White House staffers shot down the idea.   •  Trump has told friends that billionaires are constantly asking him to fix them up with longtime Communications Director Hope Hicks, a former model, but he says he refuses.   •  Trump calls certain reporters directly, feeding them stories attributed to “a senior White House official,” creating the impression that the White House leaks even more than it already does. Never before has an American president had so much impact on the country and the world in so short a time as Donald Trump. Yet no president has stirred so much controversy, dominating media coverage and conversation both pro and con.   Months after Trump took office, consumer confidence hit a seventeen-year high, unemployment plummeted to the lowest level in seventeen years, and the stock market zoomed to repeated record highs.   At the same time, ISIS was nearly defeated, Arab countries banded together to stop financing terrorists and promoting radical Islamic ideology, and Trump’s decision to send missiles into Syria because of its use of chemical weapons and his strident warnings to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un made it clear to adversaries that they take on the United States at their peril.   Yet for all the media coverage, Trump remains a cipher. Ronald Kessler has known Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for two decades and understands him better than any other journalist. The book includes an exclusive interview with Trump, the only interview he says he has given or will give for a book as president. Crammed with media-grabbing revelations. The Trump White House is the unvarnished and unbiased inside story that answers the question: Who is Donald Trump?

    Kessler's not an in-depth professional historian, or even close to it, but this is definitely his worst book and thin soup indeed. If Trump is so beneficient to Mar-a-Lago staff, even minorities, then why is he an open racist elsewhere? Kessler never explains this. His complaints that Obama was an anti-business president who was clueless about business operations and laid onerous burdens down sounds like it was lifted straight from a GOP or winger think tank brief.

Reality is that Obama bailed out banksters, that Congress' Dodd-Frank was relatively light in regulations, that the Obama stimulus package was biz friendly, and that Obamacare was too. I eventually wound up doing some skimming and grokking. I couldn't stand to read through the whole thing.

    I've read several of Ronald Kessler's books and have always enjoyed them. For the most part, the same is true of this book when he is just relaying information about Trump. Early in the book, Kessler explains that he is friendly with the subject. When the author stuck to that topic, all seemed fine. Towards the end, he threw a few curves about both Hilary Clinton and President Obama. I felt they were cheap shots, after all, they were not the subject of the book.

    A very interesting book on Donald Trump and quite different than most of what we hear in the media. I was not really pro or con on him before reading this book. Having read a lot of historical books on America, I know the media has been biased since George Washington's time. I don't know why they just can't report the facts? Isn't that their jobs? Anyway, this book was very interesting, kept my interest and shed a new light on Mr. Trump.

Many reviewers have commented that the author was biased towards Mr. Trump, but I sense a lot of authors already have a bit of an opinion before writing any nonfiction book. Most of the other Trump book authors are biased against him. That's ok in my book; most of us already have an idea in mind before reading about any subject. good or bad. I recommend this book for a difference perspective on today's political climate and the president. It is always good to read books from both sides of the picture.

    Laughably one-sided pro-Trump propaganda. Compares Trump to Copernicus, says when he plays golf he “wins for the American people,” and savagely attacks Obama and Hillary Clinton. It’s what you’d imagine a book about Trump would be if written by Trump himself.

    Why am I surprised that this is a Trump triumph? Kessler's last book was so ugly about Hillary. Trump's fans will love this and quote it as truth. Glad I checked it out of the library and didn't buy it. If I could give minus stars, I would. No facts.

    The author purports to write this missive as an attempt to introduce the reader to the "true Donald Trump." However, it becomes instantly obvious that he is smitten with the idea of being at guest at Mar-a-Lago where he admits he has been going for two decades. Having that bias makes him a less than credible judge of Trump's character.

Having that bias makes him a less than credible judge of Trump's character. For instance, he has no real explanation for Trump's tendency to use "alternate facts" or basic lies to justify his actions and positions on matters of great importance. The author's discussion of the Russian investigation is now very out of date, despite a 2018 publication date. Same with his discussion of tax cuts - no mention of the huge increase to our national debt that has resulted from this, despite condemning President Obama for increasing the national debt in his attempt to get the country out of a financial disaster in 2008. He also discusses draining the swamp, which is also no longer a valid position as so many of Trump's administration has been forced to resign for using their office for personal gain and committing numerous ethical violations. He never addressed why this president, unlike other before him had never released his tax returns, so we really don't know if he truly wants to "make America great again," or if what I believe, he wants instead to "make Trump great again." I found this book to be more an attempt to flatter Trump than reveal any "truth" though I admit there are instances where he inadvertently described things in a way that he must have thought was flattering, but really was not. I read this book knowing it was a pro-Trump book, but I expected at least some level of journalistic ideals, but found very little to say that it good about this book.

    An extreme sycophant’s view of our current President. But still more informative than ‘Fire and Fury’.

    Hardly unbiased account of the White House. Author fawns over participating in Mar-a-Lago events and intimate relationships with key players with a few gossipy tidbits added to throw readers off the scent.

    I like to provide my prejudices when I review a political book. I am a moderate Democrat and reluctantly voted for Hillary Clinton. Now for biases of the author of this book. He and his wife are friends of the Trumps. So the book has a light touch when it does come to criticisms of Donald Trump. I do recommend reading it as interesting tidbits about the running of the White House, Mar Lago, and the Secret Service. I loved the bit about the rich people in Florida and how useless they are.

At least I will say for Trump, is he built a business. He is surrounded by trust fund babies who do no real work. ugh. So the book is biased in favor of Donald Trump but it still presents some interesting insights into him and his family.

    This book clearly is bi-partisan. Ronald Kessler doesn't shy away from revealing Trump's failures, the goings-on in the White House that might not be totally acceptable to many. He also doesn't shy away from revealing Trump's successes, and especially the successes toward restoring America's safety, security, and prosperity.

I especially liked the dozens of small stories about Trump's relationships and interactions with ordinary (not rich!) people around him, and his genuine love and respect for all those in our military, as well as our police force and firefighter communities. This is a must-read for anyone who wants to get past the loud noise on CNN, msnbc, Morning Joe and the like. Like the commercial used to say, not just milk but truth also "does a body good".

    Definitely a fascinating read. I understand that this is still not even the tip of the tip of an iceberg, but gives you a little peak behind the scenes of the White House, and Trump's decision making. How much we are distracted by mass media from what is really going on. How little we actually know about the President, his daily motivations and inspirations. The book definitely makes him more relatable as a person. But on top of that, it is fascinating to find out about the daily running of White Definitely a fascinating read.

    Quite readable. Gives an inside look at how Trump is so different from other Presidents, which drives the Democrats and some others bananas. Shock appeal, and is quick to scold, but quicker to forgive, and tip a couple 100s along with forgiveness. Gives a much different look of how Trump and his wife think and act. So much so, comparing how awful Hillary is to the Secret Service agents assigned to keep her alive, while they love Melania for her kindness and grace.

    I read anti-Trump books, so in the spirit of "fair and Balanced" I read this pro-Trump book too. Yes it is overall favorable to Trump, but to my surprise not a Trump political advert. I believe that is the bis reason it isn't selling as well as he might have wished. A big mystery to me is why Mr. Kessler came out and said that Kellyanne Conway was the "biggest leaker" in the White House....but she's still there. If he was wrong about that, maybe he's wrong about other of his points.

    From the start this is obviously a pro-Trump book, which was fine by me. While the author obviously admires Trump, he also is critical, for example he comments on Trump’s treatment of staff and his “flying off the handle” as well as how his intense family loyalty has allowed Jared and Ivanka to influence White House issues they never should have been allowed to influence. It was an easy read but the author sometimes jumps around within chapters.

    If you've read any of the other campaign books you won't learn a lot new here. There are a few tales from outside of Trump's Presidency that are interesting and "different," but the book often reads as a one-after-another defense of various charges brought against Trump. From someone who is satisfied, and even thrilled with Trump's Presidency in a lot of ways, there are other books around the campaign that are more balanced and believable.

    This is a fascinating look at the inside of the Trump White House. Every never-trumper should read it. The book is extremely well written. It flows easily and quickly. Many of his topics were new to me. This is the first Kessler book that I've read, but based upon this, I'm going to read some of his others.

    I enjoyed every moment of this book. Of course it's not unbiased. How can it be? You're either pro Trump or you're not. The other is going to be biased towards or biased against, and that's just that. But thus book is more unbiased than the book "Understanding Trump." This book pointed out character flaws and didn't skirt over them. I also enjoyed the roasting of that cow Hillary.

    A good book but I completely disagree with him WRT Hillary Clinton. She committed willful espionage to advance her own financial gains. She trampled on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the Federal Records Act to hid her criminal activities. She wanted no electronic trail and thus she took her email offline. She put these emails on an unauthorized, unsecure, email server.

    Kessler had more access to Trump than other journalists. He does borrow liberally from his previous book on the secret service. There’s more substance here than Omarosa’s Unhinged, which is more of a memoir with fewer details about the administration that one could encounter in various sources.

    One less star because there were some passages that were repetitive from his previous book about the First Families. I wanted to find details about President Trump and found lots of information that you can’t get anywhere else.

    Fascinating behind the scenes look at the new White House and how it runs. The author is friends with the president but isn't afraid to be critical. Spills dirt on major layers like Ivanka and Jared; Manafort; and Kellyanne Conway. Even never-Trumpers will like this book.

    Surprisingly, I enjoyed this book. I believe Kessler gave an honest perspective on the Trump White House, the good and the bad. I believe there are things about Trump I would hate, and things I would love. Kessler presented exactly that

    I read Kesslers FBI and CIA books and if they had a bias I don’t remember them and I recall enjoying the books. This book is too biased Pro Trump to be taken seriously. It is pure 100%, uncut, straight out of the oven pro Trump propaganda.
